Take a look at this post from Acephalous: “Dissertation Fears: Please, Continue”. Hilarious stuff!

My personal dissertation fears?

1. My ideas are so interdiciplinary that I’ll never be able to explain them in a short proposal.

2. My ideas are so interdiciplinary that I’ll never find an advisor that will take an interest.

3. My ideas are so interdiciplinary that even if I get the thing written I’ll never get tenure.
